. president obama was the popular vote winner, with more than 60 million people choosing him to go back again, despite all the negativity. he's the first democratic president since franklin roosevelt to be re-elected with more than 50% of the vote. did they report that on fox news today? probably not. the last time a president was re-elected, this is how he defined his victory. >> when you win, this is a feeling that the people have spoken and embraced your point of view. that's what i intend to tell the congress. i earned capital in the campaign, political capital, and now i intend to spend it. >> did you see president obama talking about that? maybe that's his problem, i don't know. president obama has political capital on his side right now. he told america this is how he plans to use it. >> i am looking forward to reaching out and working with leaders of both parties, to meet the challenges we can only solve together. reducing our deficit, reforming our tax code, fixing our immigration system, freeing ourselves from foreign oil. we've got more work to do. >> a little bit different, isn't

york, consider the national polling. the north, midwest and west back obama. the south is with romney, or is against obama. you can see this division as it works its way down from southwest pennsylvania, including part of ohio, down through west virginia. you see it in the agitation that romney and his forces are working in their ads and speeches. donald trump, who says is president is an illegal immigrant, now doing robocalls for romney. john sununu keeps calling the president lazy and un-american. and topping it off, we heard romney out here in ohio today saying the president is bent on, get this, revenge. let's begin tonight with my interview with vice president biden. i started with that high octane issue of auto production right here in ohio. >> thank you, mr. vice president, for this time. here we are in ohio. what do you make of this republican ad that's been out there running for romney saying that chrysler is going to take jeep out of this state and send it to china? >> here are the people right in this state, toledo and other places, just back up on their feet, jeep is hirin
, this country of ours will be divided. half the country will vote for president obama and keep faith with the current direction. half will vote with varying degrees of anger to depart from it. to who knows in one of the various directions governor romney has offered. with him you need a weather map to know what road he's going to take on any given day. the question looms now of how this country will get together the day after tomorrow. i always think that's important, but it's more important now because of our form of government, the division in the country. barring a landslide, it's going to take both sides to move ahead to meet debt reduction, immigration, education, and competition in an increasingly competitive world. both sides. got it? whatever happens tomorrow, we need a working national unity when it's over. that's a fact. our two guests are the best. nbc's political director chuck todd and howard fineman. let's look at this. let's start right now and look at the last words. here's romney today in lynchburg. >> paul ryan and my vision is to limit government rather than limiti
hour. president obama bounces from one battle ground state to another using ohio as his airline hub. he's using all the hot spots trying to rally his base and any undecided voters he thinks are left. governor romney is also racing against the clock, tweaking his argument. and in case you forgot, we've got more than two guys running on tuesday, tonight we'll break down all of the battles, particularly for congress and who will decide control of it and what the next president can get done. good evening from democracy plaza. it's saturday, november 3, 2012. this is a prime time edition of "the daily rundown." we're taking a look at how we got here. presidential elections that aren't close are actually odd. no republican has gotten more than 300 electoral votes since 1988. only four democrats in history have gotten more than 53% of the vote. bottom line, this is 1976 meets 2000 meets 2004. in other words, it's a very close race. so how did we get here? the president began this campaign weighed down by a troubled economy and still faces a jobless rate higher than any incumbent seeking re-ele
will know who showed up and who didn't. we will hear of the angry voter to rid themselves of obama and the young and the hopeful, the believers in a fairer country, a country that is democratic and american, where justice is reachable and close to reality because of what we, all of us, do tomorrow. and, boy, that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" starts right now. >>> good evening, americans. welcome to "the ed show" from new york. with less than four hours to election day, this thing is going down to the wire. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> if you're having problems, i've got 99 problems but mitt ain't one. >> trying to slam the door shut in ohio. but the lines are long and the fight isn't over. >> that's not a bad way to bring it home. >> tonight ohio state senator nina turner and former governor charlie crist. >>> the gender gap is widening for republicans. terri o'neill and joan walsh on the war on women. >>> plus the all-star panel of howard fineman, richard wolffe and eugene robinson on the final hours of the campaign. and miemy final
pounded the pavement or picked up the phone. whether you held an obama sign or a romney sign, you made your voice heard. and you made a difference. >> there will be four more years for president obama, and no one can deny it. >> i think this is premature. >> tonight, the great victory for the american middle class, with e.j. dionne and richard wolffe. the secrets to victory with john nichols. the massive win for women, with terry o'neill. the diverse coalition that won it all with annette in florida and the great nina turner in ohio. and the boots on the ground have prevailed over citizens united, with leo gehrard of the steelworkers. >> we are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions, and we remain more than a collection of red states and blue states. we are and forever will be the united states of america. >> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. today we're on the other side of history. last night we saw a statement election in america and it opens up a huge opportunity for democrats to move this country forward. this was the scene in chicago, the mom
. who wants it more? president obama kicked off a three-state barn storm on the eve of the election in madison, wisconsin. he brought along bruce springsteen to rally the crowd and keep the badger state blue. then it was off to columbus, ohio, where the president was joined by rapper jay-z. >> i told jay-z the other day, our lives are parallel a little bit. nobody, i think, would expect us to be where we are today when they had met us as younger men. both of us now have daughters. both of us have wives who are more popular than we are. >> president obama was having fun on the last day of the campaign. bruce springsteen drove home the point of tomorrow oes hope. >> the american dream, the american reality. our vote tomorrow is the one undenial way we get to determine the distance in that equation. >> president obama delivered his closing message to ohio. the state he's visited more times than any other in 2012. >> we've made real progress, ohio, but the reason why we're here is because we have more work to do. our work is not yet done. as long as there is a single american who wants
polling average has president obama on top by just half a point. romney isn't as close in the states where the election is going to be decided. in paul rooip's home state of wisconsin, the president leads by an average of more than four points. president obama has kept a stead zi two-point lead in nearby iowa. in ohio the president's lead has not diminished in recent weeks. the obama campaign isn't leaving anything for chance in the buckeye state. he also sate down with my colleague, chris matthews. >> what do you think is going to happen? >> i think we're going to win clearly. i think we're going to win this state, ohio. i've been here 23, 24 days, something like that. i think we're going to win iowa, we're going to win wisconsin. we're going to win informed. we're going to win new hampshire. we have an even chance of winning virginia and florida. it could be a big win. don't just vote. knock on the door of the neighbors. the middle class depends on it. it literally depends on it. >> the vice president took on his latest lie. >> scared the heck out of these people. and it's flat false. th
expect for the next two days? >> a frenzy. president obama is going to be sending him back out on the trail. he'll go to new hampshire tomorrow as well as st. cloud, minnesota. some people think it's significant now wondering if he has somehow crept into a place where romney could conceivably knock it off. tomorrow, the president, as i said, early in the morning, he's going to new hampshire and florida. a place where he hasn't been a great deal lately, es spishlly when you compare it to ohio -- >> we unforchew fatly have to wrap it up. we do have to go. but we'll hear more from you in the next couple of days. we will go back to the show after a quick break.

for president obama is that he has a firewall in the midwest or at least his campaign hopes that. actually, the election results come on tuesday might very well hinge on whether that firewall truly exists or not. according to our polls that you just showed in iowa, president obama has a lead. in wisconsin, it's a smaller lead. some other public polls suggest that as well. however, the romney campaign has made it adamantly clear that according to their polls in iowa, the race is dead even. so it really kind of matters where you actually see the race right now. but it's largely going to come down, as chuck pointed out, to the midwest and that's why you'll see president obama campaigning in ohio, wisconsin, iowa a lot these last five days. >> amy, let me bring you in. i know to mark's point, i believe it was one of the romney advisers or a supporter who said i think the word was "crap" when it comes to polls, at least the ones they didn't like to see. nevertheless, you can disagree with the percentage point here or there, but we've not seen a poll where governor romney is leading in a battleg
obama's chances of re-election. the race is in a statistical tie. president obama at 48%, mitt romney at 47%. here is president obama in new hampshire. >> our fight goes on because we know this nation can't succeed without a growing, thriving middle class. our fight goes on because america has always done best when everybody gets a fair shot and everybody is doing their fair share and everybody is playing by the same rules. that's why you elected bill clinton in '92 and why you elected me in 2008 and why i'm running for a second term as president of the united states. >> mitt romney campaigned today in iowa, ohio, pennsylvania and virginia. here he is moments ago in cleveland. >> now, on tuesday, the choice to the american people can lead to one of two very different destinations. if the president were to be re-elected -- >> no! >> it's possible, but not likely. if he were to be re-elected, he will still be unable to work with people in congress. >> the latest polling of likely voters in the crucial battleground states shows a slight edge for president obama. in ohio, a "columbus disp
. president obama and mitt romney crisscrossing the country in a blur of nonstop events. we have two reports, nbc's peter alexander is in new hampshire today with mitt romney and nbc white house correspondent kristen welker is in house with president obama. we're going to start with the president, who is making four campaign stops in four different states. kristen welker is not campaigning. but she's making those four stops in four states, she is in mentor, ohio. kristen, good morning to you on this busy day. the president showing the importance of that state by coming back again today? >> oh, absolutely, alex. good morning to you. look, it is no surprise that president obama is kicking off the weekend here in ohio. this is really the cornerstone of his midwest firewall. if mitt romney can't win ohio, it is nearly impossible for him to win the presidency. and right now polls show that president obama is holding onto a modest lead here in the buckeye state. president obama made three stops here on friday. and really what was a campaign all-out blitz, two of those stops, by the way, alex, were
let us wait. let big bill wait. see how this second obama term starts off. learn how the country is doing. watch, listen, enjoy life in this country. you have four years traveling the world. kick back and enjoy this country. i wish her well. that's "hardball" for now. the ed show starts right now. >>> good evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. the president has told progressive leaders he's not budging on taxes. >> we're prepared to stand up for america. >> the campaign for the middle class begins at the white house, and the campaign pour millionaires has begun on the senate floor. >> half the congress opposes tax hikes. >> tonight, mary kay henry of the service employees international union and senator brown on the new campaign for the middle class. paul ryan is finally speaking, and he's still in the bubble. >> i think the surprise was some of the turnout. some of the turnout especially in urban areas. >> ohio state senator turner is here to respond. the petition to see seed is growing with speed. >> deep in the heart of texas! >> find out why i agree
an aabsentee ballot yesterday before he left. as for the candidates, obama is the first president ever to do early voting. mitt romney was at the polls this morning in massachusetts in an 11th hour decision he added two stops today. they're not official rallies but are billed as him thanking supporters. read into what you'd like. he's heading to pittsburgh right now and was in ohio earlier at the same time joe biden was there. you can see air force 2 sneak in behind the parked romney jet before romney met with reporters. peter alexander is live at romney headquarters if boston. peter, what's the vibe there? >> reporter: s.e., we can show you live pictures of what's happening right now. mitt romney is touching down in pittsburgh, pennsylvania. you noted the earlier stop in ohio. it was the romney campaign plan for him to go to ohio. governor romney said as long as they're out there, why don't we find another place to stop as well? that's where they came up with pennsylvania. this is significant because one of those states, ohio with 18 electoral votes, is a place he showered with attention. p
because of the emphasis on early voting for the obama campaign, but one of my theories on this has always been both sides could be right about their own turnout. they just have been i think incorrect assumption because they're right on their turnout model that the other guy is wrong. >> this is a time before the exit polls really start coming in when you have to call what i think of as my golden sources. these are people state by state -- >> and they're state guys. >> state guys and gals that i have dealt with for a long time and that i trust. i talked to the guy i trust the most in pennsylvania, our home state. he's a republican. he said that on his side, he said turnout in republican areas in pennsylvania is very high. and that's good for him. but he also told me that from what -- >> is this bob asher? >> i'm not telling you who it is. but on the democratic side, he said that the turnout in democratic areas, including philadelphia, including an african-american precinct and wards and so forth is also very high. predicting a big turnout in pennsylvania. so in a way both sides -- it sound
president obama is preparing to speak before a ton of reporters in milwaukee. the president won wisconsin in 2008 with 56% of the vote in that state. this time around, the campaign, though, admits the state could be in play with congressman paul ryan on the gop ticket. we'll bring you the president's remarks live from milwaukee as soon as they get things started there. >>> and after weeks of polls that put the race up in the air, there are signs the president is solidifying a top position in the race. take a look at this. two new nbc news "wall street journal" polls, pairist polls shows the president holding on to a six-point lead in ohio. you know the importance of that state by now. and two points ahead of governor romney in florida. but within the margin of error. also, early voting in florida ends today after the number of early voting days in that state is cut by half this year. 25 million people have already voted early in 34 states and washington, d.c. >>> and back to the frenetic pace on the campaign trail. both candidates have already held rallies in new hampshire, iowa, and wisc
were all over the crucial state of ohio. president obama made three different stops today in that state. then out west to springfield, ohio. then he headed north to lima, ohio. mitt romney was not going to be outdone. here is a look at another romney campaign rock concert and victory rally outside cincinnati. romney was also in wisconsin this morning, portraying himself as the candidate of change? >> the question of this election comes down to this. do you want more of the same, or do you want real change? and we bring real change. >> do you want 32 more months of private sector job growth? romney sure has a funny way of showing change, doesn't he? take a look at romney's surrogates at tonight's ohio victory rally. former secretary of state condoleezza rice, former labor secretary elaine chao, bobby jindal, tom ridge and also ohio senator rob portman. all five of these folks worked with the bush administration. in fact, mitt romney's campaign is looking more and more like the bush white house every day. romney even pulled out the old dick cheney trick of scaring voters before an electio
are launting. president obama is at 48% and mitt romney gets 47%. that is identical to the final nbc wall street journal poll before the 2004 election. bush, 48%, democrat john kerry, 47%. the race is also close in the swing states where 89 electoral college votes are up for grabs. in ohio, a columbus dispatch poll has president obama at 50% and mitt romney at 48%. in pennsylvania, a ppp poll has president obama at 52% and mitt romney at 46%. ppp has president obama at 51% and mitt romney at 48% in wisconsin. in iowa, a des moines register poll has president obama at 47% and mitt romney at 42%. as of this afternoon, nate silver of the "new york times" 538 blog forecasts that on november 6 president obama has an 85% chance of winning re-election and that president obama will win 307 electoral college votes and mitt romney will win 231. mitt romney today campaigned in ohio, pennsylvania, virginia, and iowa. his campaign has a sharp new attack line. >> you've probably heard what the president said a couple of days ago. he said you can vote for revenge. for revenge. i'm telling you, you shoul
of those elections we will think back and look at for years. a critical influkz point. >> president obama is on top by just half a point. romney isn't as close in the states where the election is going to be decided. in paul ryan's home state of wisconsin, the president leads by an average of more than 4 points. president obama has kept a steady two-point lead in nearby iowa. in the most important state, ohio, the president's lead has not diminished in recent week. he maintains a three-point lead. the obama campaign isn't leaving anything for chan in the buckeye state. vice president joe biden was in cleveland, that area today. he also sat down with my colleague, chris matthews. >> what do you think's going to happen? >> i think that we're going to win. i don't think it's going to be close for the electoral college. i think we're going to win clearly and i think you're going to see we're going to win this state ohio. i've been here 23 days, something like that. i think we're going to win iowa, wisconsin, we're going to win nevada, we're going to win new hampshire. i think we've got an eve
eclipsed what could have been a hurdle for president obama. the october unemployment report. as it turns out, last month was a strong one for job creation. the labor department said 171,000 jobs were added last month, the unemployment rate ticked to 7.9%, but remained under 8% which is key for the president. in a move that surprised exactly no one, both campaigns tried to spin the news this morning. governor romney said this in wisconsin. >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2%. today we learned it's 7.9%, that's 9 million jobs short of what he promised. >> speaking in ohio the president highlighted the spike in job creation. >> and today our businesses have created nearly 5.5 million new jobs and this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> joining us now, from washington, the man with all the answers, cnbc's amman jabbers. what's your assessment of this jobs report? >> it's definitely a strong jobs report, stronger than expected consensus was about 125,000 jobs, we saw 171,000. that was a
some movement towards the president. obama leads by seven points, almost four in ten. and he leads by four points in the battleground states, again, though, within the margin of error. the president is holding on to an eight-point advantage among women and that's slightly higher than romney's edge among men. the president's job rating sits at 49%. take a look at these numbers. 67% of likely voters approve of his handling of hurricane sandy. haven't seen numbers like that for this president on a single event, of course, going back to bin laden. and we may be seeing a sandy effect in other numbers. when voters are asked which candidate has better leadership qualities, the president -- more now pick the president. two weeks ago mitt romney led in that question, 44% to 40%. this doesn't mean romney doesn't have some things going for him. he's winning independents, the group the president won in 2008. romney leads them now by seven points. and romney leads by five points when voters are asked which candidate is better prepped to create jobs and improve the economy. still, the president
their final days speaks volumes about where the two need to produce wins. president obama, three stops, three states. the president will travel to ohio and end with a rally in iowa. the very state where his bid for the oval office began all those years o years ago. mitt romney, five stop, five states. he began in florida, follow stops in virginia, the president following the president in ohio. then his final day in his home away from home, new hampshire. this morning though in florida, governor romney -- capable of bringing about change. >> it comes down to this. do the people want four more years like the last four years? or do you want real change finally? >> president obama all weekend on the campaign trail telling supporters that they know him. and he's the one, the only one, that they can trust. >> you may not agree with every decision i've made, michelle doesn't agree with me on everything. you may sometimes be frustrated at the pace of change. i get frustrated at the pace of change sometime, but you know, i say what i mean and i mean what i say. >> both candidates appearing before enor
is about more than just obama. it's about your mama. joining me now is journalist and former judge, katherine cryer and michelle cottle. thank you all for being here. >> thank you, reverend. >> michelle, let me go to you first. this is no normal election. isn't this a huge decision point for this country? >> it is. we're always talking about this is the most important election in our history but there's at least one item on the table and that's the health care plan and the fate of it is going to depend heavily on who ends up in the white house and we've talked about elections are big ideas and you have big choices to make and i think it's notable that mitt romney has spent a great deal of time trying to cover up what his big ideas are, trying to align the differences and step away from the severe conservatism he was peddling earlier towards a more moderate version where he wouldn't dream of dealing with abortion legislation or giving tax breaks to the wealthy, that sort of thing. >> yeah. but, dana, they have supported massive cuts, to her point, cuts to government despite taking a
in this great campaign for america's future and now we're almost home. >> now it's decision day. president obama, one of the 32 million americans who took advantage of early voting, visits with campaign workers in chicago. >> we feel confident we've got the votes to win, but it's going to depend on whether those votes turn out. >> the romneys voting this morning in massachusetts before heading out for last-minute stops in ohio and pennsylvania. >> feel great about ohio. thank you. >> paul ryan cast his ballot in his hometown of janesville, wisconsin. >> are you all going to get a win tonight? >> i think we are. feel good about it. >> and vice president joe biden voting in delaware, hinting this is not his last rodeo. >> any prediction for tonight. >> i'm feeling pretty good. >> last time you're going to vote for yourself? >> i don't think so. >> there's always 2016. happy election day. i'm andrea mitchell live at democracy plaza in rockefeller cent center. we've studied the polls, truth squatted the debates, argued the misleading ads, and now it's your turn. election day your turn to decide the
for president obama. he ended his campaign in iowa, the state that delivered him his first victory in 2008. he and his campaign advisers have been doing a lot of reminiscing. they're also engaging in a lot of get out the vote efforts. president obama stopping by an obama campaign office as well today, tamron, urging them to make as many phone calls as they can. the obama campaign feels as though this race rests on turnout. they feel confident about their get out of the vote strategy. it's something they've been working on for the past 18 months, and their goal is to bring together that coalition that delivered the president victory back in 2008. that winning coalition included african-americans, latinos, as well as young voters, of course, who are key to that. we talked about the nostalgia, tamron, that president obama and his campaign are feeling right now. one of the president election day traditions is to play a basketball game with closest friends and advisers. i'm told that e-mailed former body man reggie love last week and asked him to set that game up. that will take place later on this
now. >>> good evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show," from new york. president obama went to bat for the middle class today and mitt romney is still beating up the 47%. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> with respect to the issue of mandate, i've got one mandate. i've got a mandate to help middle class families and families that are working hard to try to get -- that's my mandate. >> the president draws a line in the sand for the middle class. >> the only question now is, are we going to hold the middle class hostage? >> and gets as angry as you will ever see him taking on an old bitter foe. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> tonight, congressman tim ryan of ohio on the president's middle class rallying cry. jonathan alter on the epic throwdown with john mccain. >>> plus, the new senator even nate silver didn't see coming. >> we missed the north dakota senate -- >> yes, you did! >> heidi hitekamp joins me for an exclusive interview. and republicans in ohio haven't learned anything. tonight, st
, very quickly, and it never got better. well, today president obama stepped into that particular page of the history books, when he he would his first press conference after being re-elected. he waited longer than any of his modern predecessors to hold the first post-re-election press conference, was he did follow the tradition when he convened the press corps today, and he did so in the midst of the controversy over the sudden resignation of his cia chief, who's also the former commander of the iraq war and the afghanistan war. the highest profile military and intelligence figure in the country. so david petraeus' old job of running the cia is now suddenly an available job in this administration and the same scandal that created that vacancy at the cia has also now touched the current top u.s. commanding general in afghanistan, whose successor for that job is due to have his confirmation hearings in washington tomorrow. well, today at his first post-re-election press conference, the president largely deflected questions about who he would be appointing to all the top jobs in the admi
was a bit swept up in that moment. remember the front page of the new york times after the election, obama, racial barrier falls in decisive victory. the victory was decisive, but the barrier had not fallen. then senator obama was simply hoisted over it, propelled by decades of civil rights demonstrations. hard won legislative victories, educational opportunities and shifting racial boundaries. but senator mccain, "the new york times" and frankly many pundits writing in the heady moments of the victory failed to articulate how firmly the barriers remained intabt. the win was a culmination, not the single definitive, most sought after culmination, but a culmination of racial struggles. but it was not the initiation of a new era. as if to prove the point, the racialized attacks on president obama were swift and hardly subtle. the most obvious being the unrelenting demands for the president to prove his citizenship to a well-organized fringe of radical birthers, the election of a black president doesn't tell us much about the structural barriers that continue to face the vast majority of blac
